Imaginations speculate at the places technology might take the world. Advancements conjured up in a think tank may just make it out for public use. Here is a window of what lies on the horizon for Google TV.
The leap to big screen HDTV web browsing is a natural idea to consider. Top-notch in television production, Samsung Electronics Co. announced plans to equip a Blu-Ray player with Google TV capabilities. The efforts to encourage users to access the web from their living room sofa would be brought to light via the Google platform. The device would function in the capacity expected, allowing users full web browsing capabilities and watch their favorite television shows on the same device.
The initial release of the Google TV product was met with a lackluster response. It didn’t contain the elements of ease that consumers have come to love with Google products. However, considering the leaps and bounds that this innovative company has accomplished since its inception, Google TV cannot be counted out yet. During the recent Computer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, Nevada, the internet giant restrained from make a big show of their product. Instead they asked partners to hold back on the debut of compatible products. Google is focused on working out the kinks in their innovative plan.
Since public announcement of Google TV in May 2010 there has been considerable reactions in the wake of its proclamation. Major networks, NBC, CBS, and ABC have officially blocked Google TV from obtaining content at their online sites. Well-known internet television viewing site Hulu has also followed in kind. Many critics state that the insaitiable desire consumers displayed for Google TV upon its public announcement has quelled considerably. People are switching their focus to smart televisions that will broadcast the internet in any home. One thing is certain, Google isn’t content to be counted out in this arena.
